      The goal is to make is as easy and cheap as possible.

      What I do:

      1) decide to go some place "cool" on the weekend. I have always tried
      to go cool places on the weekend way before I started to vlog. Now that
      I am vlogging, I try to make extra sure I go somewhere cool. So, since
      I am going to go to the place anyway, the "cost" of the video creation
      part is zero.

      2)Time shooting. I usually don't film more than five minutes at a time,
      always of something different. I just pull out the camera and film a
      bit as I move along my adventure.

      3)I shoot with a Nikkon Cool Pix that captures in quicktime format. I
      have no time converting.

      4) Editing. I just load the clips I have filmed in order and do minimal
      clipping at the front and back.

      5)I add a quick and dirty title and some credits at the end. This takes
      minimal time.

      6) I usually use all my footage that I film.

      7) Then I upload it. While it is uploading, I create the blog post
      where the video will be embeded.

      8) Once it is uploaded, I get the embed code and past it into the blog
      post and upload that. I am now done.

      When running smoothly, I have this process down to a half an hour after
      the footage is filmed.

      Check out my latest post. This took about a half an hour or less to put
      it all together.

      It is simple, but I think it works.
